I fully support the first sentence but the American example isn’t the way we want to do that. It’s an abject failure for them. Why would it be any different for us?
All of the positions that you referenced are “voted” in in the US. Not so here. ...and voting those kinds of people in raises another kind of issue, where fair and unbalanced judgement/application of the law is concerned.I think just getting the Councillor/MP/MPP for each voting district become more directly responsible to the electorate would be a significant step in itself. This already happens in some of the States down south. Recent examples include judges, sheriffs and governors who have been recalled due to some scandal or other, and other positions are limited to two terms, similar to the terms limits for the US President. There is nothing similar in Canada, with appointments for life, for the Senate and Supreme Courts, and multigenerational terms for Stephen Harper, Jean Chretien, and other regimes in the various provinces.
You're talking about a disenfranchisement issue rather than an argument against the execution of a democratic ideal.All of the positions that you referenced are “voted” in in the US.

Here’s a tip... They’re NOT constitutional.Fuck the police
Hope everything's ok. Don't like the St Mike's visits.5 hours and counting with a friend in critical care at St.Mike’s. Just finally spun one up and hit the street to get a breathe. I will say this...
Those two machines were binging and pinging and nobody came, forever.
I’ve learned more about the machines that go -“PING” - tonight than I ever thought I would. I can silence, reset and troubleshoot without supervision. Excellent, user-friendly software. I’m fully responsible for the flow of fluids at this point.
Not asking to be paid nurses wages for my services but - it’d be nice if Rob Ford’s brother could toss a few rechargeable batteries to the medical system, so the fucking things don’t start “PINGING” every time my friend has to unplug them to go to the bathroom.
Thanks man. Yeah. Nasty. She’s been on lithium, which is a brutal element for anyone to have to take. Her doctor over prescribed the amount. Kidney’s were down to 5% function. They said that if she hadn’t gone in, she would have been dead within a couple of days.Hope everything's ok. Don't like the St Mike's visits.
This is not as good as it may appear, even for those who like the "no deficit reduce debt" mantra. Not only were there actual program cuts, and people cuts, but now there is doubt whether the original estimates were bs in the first place. All the governments play with these numbers, but now you have to wonder how real these estimates are or if they're just messaging.
